Early on, Natalie Portman left her imprint. The 41-year-old Oscar-winning actress of Black Swan and Vox Lux has been a household celebrity since she appeared in the 1994 film Lêon: The Professional at the age of 13. She developed her reputation as an it-girl by stealing parts from famous actors like Gary Oldman and Jean Reno.

Portman was similarly famous in the fashion world and delivered an early aptitude for style. She wore a polka-dot fake fur, black slip dress, and complementing opaque tights to the Los Angeles premiere of Leon, combining numerous styles from the decade’s middle into one eccentric ensemble. Red carpet minimalism is frequently credited with starting to gain popularity with celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Winona Ryder, but by the time the 1996 film Beautiful Girls entered cinemas, Portman had fully embraced the trend. Portman was just as stylish as her Generation X contemporaries when she showed up to a movie screening wearing a graphic Prada slip dress and her hair pulled back.

Designer innovations have been influenced by Portman. When she brought a piece of his clothing to the 2002 Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones premiere, she contributed to the success of her close friend Zac Posen.

Portman keeps things straightforward these days. She has served as a Dior spokesperson for many years, and she looks great in any of the classic gowns or delicate mini-dresses designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri. When she’s not working, she wears her go-to outfits: Rodarte t-shirts, vegan versions of Adidas Stan Smith sneakers, and Acne Studios denim.
